If the Republican Party had pursued its platform, the Tea Party Movement would never have materialized. If Richard Burr and the other two-faced Republican Sacajaweas* had not been bald-faced lying to us, the party that controls the House, Senate and White House would have already repealed Obamacare... but most of them ARE rank liars. Meadows, Budd, Cruz, Lee and a few others—by being politicians of integrity—are exceptions to the GOP rule.
It is no small truth that Congresspeople face enormous pressures and must make compromises on very complicated, nuanced matters. To sit in Moore County and demand they behave as we would (with our limited information) would be naive and unfair. However, what is 100% reasonable and unquestionable is the expectation these people won't LIE to us. Most do. Burr did and this is just one example.
"What about the Democratic Party?" you ask. Well, it is hopelessly lost to an underlying and increasingly open Marxist agenda, and conservatives don't vote for Dems except when punishing corrupt Repubs. More salient, our Congresspeople aren't Dems, are they? Which is worse? An enemy standing at your door and threatening to blow up your house, or a "ally" who is in the back room releasing termites? It's a tough call, but this blog and the article that sparked it are about Richard Burr, Republican, NC.
